Rotten: Totally unnecessary, sterile remake of LA FEMME NIKITA.

I was a sucker for Fonda her. But this was actually a decent american version of the awesome french la femme nikita. Gabriel Bryne is awesome in this version.

Some great OTT set pieces with strong performances from Fonda, Keitel and Byrne, but not quite as affecting as it wants to be and severely dated. Full review later.

Even though its regarded as a poor remake of the original french film, this is still a good action film. Fonda is supremely sexy as 'Nina' the woman turned around to an assassin, its pretty violent and there's plenty of gun play with steamy scenes. Keitel is great as the cold cleaner, his scene is very unnerving and chilling really, no emotions that man. Bancroft is perfect as the classy elegant female who must teach 'Nina' to become a lady and deadly at the same time and Byrne is good as her boss in his usual stoic manner. It is kinda dated now of course but it still works well, nothing too amazing but its a solid action thriller, Fonda makes it for sure.
